Time to get up. Yes, I know it's freezing. It's just going to get colder this week. And harder to run. So let's do this.
Why? You've forgotten. I know, it's easy to, when you're snuggled up in bed, and I'm trying to encourage you to get up and go somewhere. Here are the top ten reasons. They're good, but I see you not clicking, so I'll summarize:
Healthy you - running is good for your physical health, especially your heart and your strength, but even your immune system and your endurance.
Happy you - it clears the stress, and increases your confidence. You may even lose some weight.
Brainy you - it makes your brain connect the neurons better, and have you never experienced that "I can solve the world's problems" moment while you're working out? That invincibility? Come on, you need to. Today.
And here's our music. It's just for fun. Coldplay and the Chainsmokers - Something just like this.
I love the lyrics.
"I've been reading books of old
The legends and the myths
Achilles and his gold
Hercules and his gifts
And Batman with his fists
And clearly I don't see myself upon that list
But she said, "Where d'you wanna go?
How much you wanna risk?
I'm not looking for somebody
With some superhuman gifts.
Some fairytale bliss.
Just something I can turn to.
Somebody I can kiss.
I want something just like this."
And then, as in every great song, it goes "Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo"
Take a listen. Then come with us.
